One of Mexico’s most important gifts to the world, with the biggest impact, is the cacao bean to make chocolate. According to legend the God of Light, Quetzalcoatl, brought cacao down to the Toltecan people and taught them how to cultivate it. It was a special offering and considered “Food of the Gods”. It has retained its place among the most cherished foods in Mexico. According to tradition Chocolate is to be made only by the hands of a woman, whipped into a foamy mixture, and always served with Pan de Muertos.
